The unabridged, digital audiobook edition of Someone Like You, Roald Dahl's first collection of his world famous dark and sinister adult stories.
A wife serves a dish that baffles the police; a harmless bet suddenly becomes anything but; a curious machine reveals a horrifying truth about plants; and a man lies awake waiting to be bitten by the venomous snake asleep on his stomach.
